A tale of two newspapers: My take on the "Great" Newspaper War, why I left both of them and how they have declined
In 1985, as a youthful, ingenuous reporter for the Las Vegas Review-Journal, I sat next to the general manager at a Lake Tahoe awards banquet and asked him about the Las Vegas Sun. It went something like this: “When will the Sun go out of business?” I wondered of the competition, which I had, in my competitive zeal, come to think of as the Evil Empire. “Oh, we’ll never let it go out of business,” Earl Johnson told me. “We will first go into a Joint Operating Agreement with them to keep the Sun...
UPDATE: Guy Hobbs, the numbers guru who advised the panel, tells me that while the commdoity rate is going up by 60 percent, it is muted by other factors in the bill. That is, the commeodity rate is only a component of the bill, so it will be partially absorbed by others. He estimates the highest residential increases at about 13 or 14 percent. That will still cause some eyebrow-raising, but perhaps not head-exploding. Take a look at the appendices of the report here, espcially Appendix I, for...
Lieutenant governor anointee Mark Hutchison, handpicked by Gov. Brian Sandoval and backed by the GOP Establishment, raised about $350,000 at his first event. That estimated figure, from an insider with knowledge and one who does not (as some do) exaggerate, must be the most ever raised by a candidate for lieutenant governor -- or perhaps even an incumbent LG running for re-election. For context, Lt. Gov. Brian Krolicki reported $138,000 raised in the year before he ran for re-election in 2010...
Becky Harris, who lost an Assembly race last cycle, is preparing a campaign against Democratic state Sen. Justin Jones in a contest that could determine which party controls the upper house. Harris is likely to run with the imprimatur of the Senate GOP leadership -- she was recruited by Minority Leader Michael Roberson, I'm told. She's a lawyer who was just this week named by Clark County Commission Chairman Steve Sisolak (!) to a mobile home committee. Privately, the GOP folks are touting her...
On the same I reported in my email newsletter that state Sen. Kelvin Atkinson was 75 percent sure he would run for secretary of state, Treasurer Kate Marshall announced early endorsements. This is classic: In a rare early move, the Northern Nevada Building and Trades Council has endorsed Kate Marshall. “Breaking with our normal practices the Council last Thursday made the decision to step out early,” said Paul McKenzie, Secretary Treasurer of the Northern Nevada Building & Construction...
On Wednesday evening at the Red Rock resort, a full-blown anointment party will take place in the biggest race of Campaign '14: lieutenant governor. Yes, lieutenant governor. With high-level Democrats already conceding Gov. Brian Sandoval's re-election, despite the torrent of "Sandovalcare" news releases from the state Democratic Party (you never know....), the Party of Reid is focused on making it as difficult as possible for the governor (even if he is not so inclined) to run against Prince...
UPDATE, 10:12 AM: Turns out Democratic congressional candidate Erin Bilbray, who actually has Jewish relatives, is holding an event on Yom Kippur, the most holy of the High Holy Days. And on Friday the 13th. Here's the invite. The Jewish High Holy Days begin Wednesday with Rosh Hashanah. And guess what else is happening? These:
